The 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in six trim levels, namely Laredo, Altitude, Limited, Overland, Summit, and Summit Reserve. They all use the same 3.6-liter V6 gas engine delivering 293 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, along with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard equipment on all but the range-topping Summit Reserve trim, but three types of all-wheel drive drivetrain are available, depending on the trim level.
Standard equipment in the entry-level Laredo trim includes 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, heated exterior mirrors, cloth seat upholstery, keyless entry with push button start, eight-way power driver's seat adjustment, dual-zone climate control, manual tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster, and a six-speaker audio system with an 8.4-inch color touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and six USB ports.
Going up through the model hierarchy adds more comfort- and convenience features, such as automatic wipers, a power liftgate, heated steering wheel and front seats, larger alloy wheels up to 20 inches in size, a choice between two sunroof options, wireless charging, and load-leveling rear suspension. Upmarket trims receive a 10.1-inch touchscreen display upgrade, embedded navigation, leather upholstery, extra speakers for the audio system, four-zone climate control, and a surround-view camera. Some of these features can be added to lower-trim models as part of bundled option packs, and some can also be added as standalone options.
Safety equipment is also comprehensive across the range, with adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking, and rear parking sensors with automatic braking all included as standard.
The price of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee errs on the tough-to-digest side of the segment in the US. The Laredo kicks off at $41,035, increasing to $46,140 for the Altitude. Limited trims retail for an MSRP of $47,855, the Overland starts at $57,195, and the Summit costs $61,710. All of these models come as standard with RWD and a 4x4 drivetrain will cost an additional $2,000. The Summit Reserve costs $68,190. All of these Grand Cherokee prices exclude Jeep's destination charge of $1,795.
The pricing for the 4xe range starts at $59,865 for the base model, and rising to $65,260 for the Trailhawk. $67,880 is what you'll pay for an Overland 4xe while the Summit and Summit Reserve PHEV cost $72,595 and $77,075, respectively.
There are multiple packages available, but not all of them are available across the range.
The Laredo can be ordered with the Luxury Tech Package I, consisting of heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power liftgate, rain-sensing wipers, remote start, and a wireless charging pad, to name just a few. It retails for $1,400. There are no packages for the Altitude, apart from the Finishing Package by Mopar, which costs $425 and adds paint protection, and front and rear splash guards. The Limited has access to the $2,295 Luxury Tech Group iI for Capri leather seats, integrated off-road camera, intersection assist, and front and rear park sensors, to name just a few. There are loads more features in this package.
The Advanced Pro Tech Package II ($2,235) is only available for the Trailhawk 4xe and includes night vision pedestrian/animal detection system, Intersection Collision Assist system, a surround View camera, front and rear park assist, and rear backup camera washer. The Trailhawk is also available with the $1,445 Luxury Tech Package III which consists of includes rain-sensing windshield wipers, four-door passive entry, a power tilt telescope steering column with memory, wireless charging pad, second-row manual window shades, digital rearview mirror, Intersection Collision Assist system, and a hands-free power-adjustable height liftgate.
The Overland is available with two packages. The $2,155 Luxury Tech Package IV adds a wireless charging pad, second-row, manual window shades, digital rearview mirror, power seat-back massage for driver and front passenger, 12-way with a four-way power lumbar adjustable seat position with memory for driver and front passenger, and four-zone automatic temperature control. The Advanced ProTech Pack III costs $2,235 and adds a Map-in-Cluster display, head-up display, Active Driving Assist system, night vision with pedestrian/animal detection system, Intersection Collision Assist, a surround-view camera, and rear back-up camera washer.
The Luxury Tech Package V for the Summit costs just $275 and adds manual second-row window shades and a wireless charging pad. You can also add the Advanced ProTech Package IV, which retails for $2,235, and add a head-up display, night vision, and a digital rearview mirror with auto-dimming.
A rear seat entertainment package is available for most models at $1,995 and the Trailer Tow Prep Group will cost you $695.
After spending time with the decked-out Grand Cherokee Summit Reserve, we'd have a tough time downgrading to one of the lower trims. But since we know some buyers might be put off by the concept of a $70,000 Jeep, we'll recommend a nicer middle ground. The Limited trim offers a nice assortment of standard features starting in the $47k range. Even with 4x4, adding the larger audio system, a panoramic roof, and the Luxury Tech Group II package will push this trim to roughly $54k. Should off-road adventures be in your future, we'd recommend the Trailhwakk 4xe model. This model can quickly approach and exceed $73k with the glass roof and Luxury & ProTech Groups.
